This area is part of an extensive snowmobile trail system in the Pharsalia Woods State Forest, located in Chenango County.

Forest Rangers were contacted just past 9 pm Saturday.

The pair initially tried to rescue themselves by using a winch cable to get back on the road.

However, that only jeopardize the condition of the trail further. Eventually, a team of Rangers would respond on snowmobiles.

Once found, the individuals were brought out of the woods and treated for mild hypothermia, warming up in a nearby sheriff’s vehicle.

Both were released home by just after Midnight.
